What sort of horrible nation they are!! They scam you, they do imitation product, they do fake foods etc. What a shameful nation

Well . . . being an LEO in Florida, and so many Chinese business are financed by the Gov. of China, I give them a fine, or ticket as often as I can. The Gov. of China is actually paying the fine, and the American people are better off.

Another reason to not go to China, just a bunch of scammers and thieves. Beijing government rewards crooks. Wow! I’m sure they’re not all like that but seems like a culture of swindlers.

Chicken shits who are afraid of taking a risk should definitely avoid China or any kind of travel at all. Stay in your mom's basement.

I have not owned a car in China, and I see no need to. Didi is so cheap, and in my city, seems to be fast and pain free. I see the attraction to owning a car, but stories like this, just make having a car so much of a hassle.

You hardly lay any responsibility on the government which allows a bad driver to provoke additional bad driving via a foul financial incentive. These Buick drivers who get US$10 are just the tools of the actual beneficiary who got the US$500. You let go the big fish who feeds off the little fish made up of the accessories ( dashcam stoolpigeons ) and the guilty victims who are entrapped ( guys like you ).

China is a shit in the countryside toilet, there are millions of flies on the turd trying to reproduce by staffing their little bastard maggots into the turd, they strictly following the program , they dream of the warmer place in the shit pile. But from the reasonable and sanitary standpoint those holes should have been removed long ago.

I imagine that because China doesn't have a benefits system, a benefits culture like the UK meaning if you don't work you get nothing people will always be on the lookout for new ways of making money.

These scammers and their ilk are really painting the PRC as a really awful country to live in...their scorched-earth policies are deterring a helluva lot of potential visitors and trashing China's reputation to the whole world....so sad.

Next time Drive a Jalopy and drive the AZZ hole off the road. Put a dash cam in your car and return the favor.
Hugo Pan (5 months ago)
You dare to drive in China without a dash cam? such a bold idea. I m from China, I always use dash cam and keep ignoring my passengers' talking. We have to be defensive and get ready to hit a child rushing into the road anytime. Reading the comments, I can understand why people don't like us. But there is nothing I can do. Our schools prefer politic rather than polite. Anyway, 500$ is your tuition now.

I normally agree with most of what Winston posted, however in this situation, I do understand the intention of citizen reporting system here. Sadly, the bad guys here managed to monetize a well intended setup. I hate bad drivers period, but going 5km to force others to pass illegally on the right shoulder is worse and downright evil.... just to make a buck. They might even pretend to have a stall and do the same, which is so sad. However, Winston should not have gone into the emergency lane just to get away from that psycho driver. Stay in your lane, and if the crazy dude caused an accident, then it would've been his fault. Wisely avoid breaking traffic laws, just because somebody pissed you off, what initially was the dude's fault now becomes your fault. In a chaotic driving environment like China, Russia, and many 3rd world countries ... get yourself a dashcamera for your own protection. This will help you if you need to go to court for any dispute.
Nelson Vazquez-Munoz (5 months ago)
What is the point of an emergency lane if you cannot use it during emergencies? Buy a dash camera.

Someone pulling that bs is likely to end up in an accident himself. Hopefully with a vehicle that has a dashcam...

It doesn't take a genius to put a cap on this. The same car, person or entity shouldn't be allowed to make money on more than 1 or 2 vehicles per month or so to remove the financial incentive. Otherwise it's just asinine and puts peoples lives in danger for meager amounts of money.

I know nothing of Chinese law or procedure but, if this were in the UK, you could try refusing to pay the fine IF that means that the case goes to court and the police have to prove their case. Then they probably would have to call the guy who took the webcam. He/she might not want to show their face in court, or maybe the police can't be bothered to prosecute. In the UK, challenging parking fines this way often results in a no-show by the prosecution - they just don't want to spend the time and resources. And, if it does go to court, the scammer turns up, video them...shame them.

taiwan and china are both the same cultures. but the governments are so different. one is like the free world the other is full of oppression. are the people the same in both countries? or do they seem as different as their governments are? i got to wonder how much the cultures are influenced by the governments, driven to be scammers so much in china. i havent seen so many scam videos by so many youtubers about anywhere else as i have about china.
Brett Dwigans (5 months ago)
It sounds like the Chinese gov. Is either part of these scams or at least obliging the scammers by passing these ridiculous laws. Which makes me wonder why you would stay in such a shady country.

This is really sad. Some level of disrespect and evil. I feel for you Winston. I know you are used to living this life but looking from outside it just stresses me. These scams that you would expect from dirt poor countries. I actually was mad you were drinking wine. All I thought is of you drink poisoned fake wine. China would be okay if you can be in a rural area away from the toxic city life and still be able to come and business in the city ...but living in the cities there look like a lot of stress.

This must factor in to their social credit system that they have going there. Very interesting social engineering at work, right now. Needless to say, your name is very ironic and fitting, if you have ever read George Orwell's 1984. If you haven't, I suggest you read it as soon as you can.

When you build a society that encourages tattling and informing on each other (the Stasi security state in East Germany is an example), then life is just tedious. But remember, all you rat finks, snitches get stitches and end up in ditches.

Serptntza and Laowhy86,I saw this a few days ago & couldn't get it out of my head, retold the story to both brothers. I thought that if YOU had a dash-cam and (just by accident) caught someone running a red light or a stop sign, could YOU get a bounty, not to mean that YOU would even consider that? The $500US fine seemed a little steep, even by US standards, as US tickets for the same offense wouldn't even begin to approach that figure, except perhaps in areas specializing in victimization of out of state motorists. Since you were a foreigner, do you think that you paid a "foreigner tax" on your ticket which would not have applied to a local? Just thinking out loud.
Rick (6 months ago)
lol. OMG. this is why we all left china and no plans on going back to that dump....U.S. have tons of photo tickets too...but atleast when I get one, i know is a real ticket.... best of luck in china...
nemanja milosevic (6 months ago)
Or add a cam to your own car and if you get a ticket, show them that he was blocking the traffic or whatnot I know there are small chances they would care, but its better than nothing.

So there are no recourse is in this situation? No lawyers? No way of proving that you were entrapped? Talk about as system set up for failure. This will happen in America if they had laws like this.
